Using GAO RFID Systems in the Meat Processing Industry

Our RFID Systems ensures that your unique challenges are managed effectively for the best possible results. In an industry that is continuously faced with competition and government regulation, processing plant managers are looking for technology that help their business become more effective while keeping costs low. Our RFID Systems can help in the following ways:

Access Control of High-Risk Sites

Contamination is one of the very likely possibilities in a plant that processes meat. Unfortunately, that possibility could put your employees and consumers at risk for disease. Hence, it is vital that your organization provides a clean and safe environment to both work in as well as produce a high-quality end product. Using our RFID Access Control System, RFID Tags enable a fully automated way of granting and restricting access to zones to only authorized personnel to reduce the risk of contamination from visitors and unauthorized personnel. Each time these zones are accessed, the event is logged into the system database. Not only does this provide managers with a way of reviewing access records, but it also provides an accurate paper trail for inspectors if requested.

Equipment and Inventory Management

As meat processing plants own a variety of equipment ranging from meat grinders, spice mixers, tumblers, and smoke houses, this equipment is an integral part of your manufacturing plant and these assets need to be tracked and protected from theft. In addition, these assets require upkeep as well as scheduled maintenance so that the meat remains contamination-free. Our RFID Asset Tracking System allows you to quickly see item locations, track the equipment if they become lost, and protect your equipment from downtime by monitoring and automating the maintenance process

In addition, our Asset Tracking System enables you to quickly monitor and locate raw meat products to ensure you enough inventory for daily disassembly and processing. Using RFID tags to track pallets and cases, you can have a clear view of inventory and be able to forecast what is required ahead of time to ensure maximum production efficiency.

 Tracking Visitors and Employees

Identifying and locating both visitors and staff in a manufacturing environment is not only necessary, but vital to maintaining the food safety and the security of the organization. With our RFID Personnel Tracking System can aid to monitor them no matter where they are on premises. Using RFID, specialized tags with integrated alarms can secure the safety of your employees as well as visitors in the event of danger. Once activated, the tag will message the monitoring system with the employee’s identity and location. Because every personnel can be tracked via a unique RFID Tag, it is possible to backtrack to see if there were unauthorized access was made in cases where food contamination becomes an issue.
